The East Campus Discovery Days and Farmers Market is a free community event designed for people of all ages and backgrounds. We are excited to kick off our fourth season with live entertainment. Below is a sample of the music we offered in 2023:

Black Ophanim

Having been described as, “intellectually playful, “ Black Ophanim creates music in inspired and improvisatory fashions. Jazz is only the foundation of the music, with RnB, Hiphop, and funk being heavily seasoned into the tunes. The music may be written by Jonathan Leach, but it is made whole and new by the rest of the band. Any show you catch will be guaranteed to be the only one of its kind.

Lucas Kellison

Lucas Kellison was born and raised in the armpit of Nebraska.  A full-time touring musician for a decade, Kellison honed his multi-instrumental and lead vocal chops with various acts.  He has been in and shared the stage with various acts, including George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic (bass/vocal), Gorillaz, Leela James, Dead Prez, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and many others. 

Will Hutchinson

Will Hutchinson is a singer/songwriter, music producer, retired busker, mixing and recording engineer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist.  Over the last five years he’s performed a mix of original and cover music at over 500 events as a featured performer at festivals, clubs, and concert series, as well as providing atmosphere via playing background music at private events like weddings, anniversaries, and corporate functions across the USA.  His songs are often autobiographical and story based and he primarily performs and sings with his Gibson J45 Acoustic guitar.
